Soooo, we left DFW airport at 7 p.m. and hit the road on the first leg to Colorado. Stopped in Witchita Falls, Tx for the night. Just did the easy thing and had a thin crust pizza delivered. When you want to be on the road by 6 or 7 a.m. it is the perfect dinner option. Even better if you remembered to bring along a great bottle of red wine to share with two plastic red wine glasses thanks to Target. (the motel plastic cups just don't cut it somehow)
Up early...even before alarm rings, as our two "hounds" were ready to hit the road. We obliged them. What else can you do when two dogs are begging to depart?
These kind of weekends are our absolute favorite. Get in the car and get on a road you have never been on before. The day was incredible. Bright sunny skies, a few puffy clouds and the best darn scenery imagineable. We headed to Amarillo and then across the northeast corner of New Mexico and on in to Colorado. Up I 25 to just below Denver and around the west side of Denver into Boulder. Past the Red Rocks and arrived before Christine had picked up Louise from the airport in Denver. Checked in to our pet friendly motel and got ready to meet "our girls" for dinner.
(I could write an entire post on pet friendly motels.) We have had a wonderful reunion here in Boulder and will head up to Keystone tommorrow for a week of skiing.
Let the fun begin.
